Anti-trafficking police in Phnom Penh on Sunday arrested two women in relation to the sale of an 11-month-old infant to a woman incapable of bearing her own children.
Mother To Pi Ray, 28, allegedly worked with Kong Chandy, 24, to sell her child for $800 because she claimed that after divorcing her husband she was not in a suitable position to raise the baby.
Police arrested the pair at a house in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district.
Keo Thea, the chief of the capital’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Unit, said yesterday the police made the arrests after Chan Ta, the father of the child, issued a complaint on August 18.
